Living Your Best Life

Are you living your best life?  If not, what would you change to do so?  There are several things I am working on to help move me in the direction I want to go in life.  I am always looking for ways to improve myself as a person and as a mom.  I want to be seen as a strong, confident woman who makes great decisions.  I also want to be calm when faced with events that can be overwhelming.  These areas of my life are probably the most challenging to overcome.   I think when you grow up in negativity, it becomes almost like a self-fulfilling prophecy.  The negativity that is put upon can become your self-perception and then in turn that is what you exude.  Making improvements in your self-talk can make a profound change in your own life and those around you.

The other area of our life I will love to make some strides in is our financial picture.  I want to help move our family towards being financially sound so that my children can grow to have respect for money.  Since we have been in a not so financially sound place, I want my children to see that with hard work and persistence you can achieve success.

I want, as a family, for us to be seen as a strong family unit who loves each other deeply.  In so doing, I stress how important it is to respect one another for all of their qualities, to be more forgiving and more loving.
